The Heart of Why

Written By: Anadara Arnold

The Heart of Why
Reveal to me the heart of why I’m hurting
Times like these it’s all the hope I have
Sometimes when I pray, I just sit and stare away
Waiting ‘til I have the strength to become weak
Then I hear you say come away love come away
Leave your thoughts of yesterday and follow me
So I move a little closer to you
You understand it’s all that I can do
And you...
Reveal to me the heart of why I’m hurting
Times like these it’s all the hope I have
Something deep inside of me is stirring
I need release, Jesus bring me peace
And when I can’t sleep with the worry running deep
And I’m drowning in the need to let it go
You’re the voice that speaks “Peace be still” and calms the sea
Will you speak it over me and save my soul?
Help me move a little closer to you
It’s all that I can bring myself to do
And you…

What I Do With Your Time

Written By: Anadara Arnold and Stephanie Lewis

What I Do With Your Time
So much of living is making decisions
In every day we go through
Let it be your voice that makes me make my choice
So I choose the loving thing to do
Tomorrow will go where it’s going
I’ll ride the waves of this ocean
Minutes, Moments, Your hands hold them
Day follows night In a perfect design
Now I realize this isn’t my life
It’s never been mine
Life’s what I do with your time
I’m just a girl in a lost, fallen world
Trying to stick to your plan
Sometimes it’s hard and it’s hard on my heart
There are things that I don’t understand
You never said this life would be easy
But promised to always be with me

Oh, what I do with your time
Oh, a perfect design
What I do with the minutes and moments…

Orphan's Lullaby

Written By: Anadara Arnold and Scott Faircloff

Orphan’s Lullaby
Bridge Maker
Build me a bridge to another world
The one that I live in is so cold
So broken and alone
Tear taker
Catch all the rain falling from my eyes
Run in and rescue my hungry cries
You can keep me warm
Rock me to sleep
Sing me a lullaby
Whisper to me it’ll be alright
Hold me here ‘til dawn
Lift me in your arms
Higher than a shooting star
Closer so I can hear your heart
Tonight

This Time Next Year

Written By: Anadara Arnold

This Time Next Year

We’ve walked a mile to find a place to rest
Now we’re swinging like little girls
on an old wooden bench
as our conversation wanders
toward the months that are to come
you confess that you are scared
but you’re not telling anyone

See, you do this thing where you let your love fly free
with the same two open hands
that brought your love to me
now you’re gonna give your life away and trust it will come back
‘cause you know life is meaningless if you don’t love like that
and I know

This time next year
I will meet you here
Don’t you worry my Louise

This time next year
I will meet you here
I believe we’re gonna swing
we’re gonna swing

Mountains move one stone at a time
when you lose faith in that come on and borrow mine
‘cuz I’m gonna stay beside you, gonna hold your hand and say
we will get through your tomorrows like we got through your today

Life was meant to live
Moments just like this
We don’t want to miss

NYC

Written By: Anadara Arnold and Scott Faircloff

NYC
All alone with you
On a crowded street
Underneath the pale moonlight
We should do this every night
Stars and little lights
I’m so hypnotized
Why do I love romance so
Tell me it’s not just for show?
And if it is then I don’t want to know
Livin’ it up in NYC
Lights are low and it makes for pretty love
Livin’ it up in NYC
Lights are low and it makes for pretty love
Feel the city heat
Underneath our feet
Trains that jangle just below
Taxi lights put on their show
We don’t have a care
laughing as we make our way
to our usual café
table for two it’s just me and you
Oh, I’ve been in love in New York

Saturdays and Streetlights

Written By: Anadara Arnold and Scott Faircloff

Saturdays and Streetlights Sometimes I just need the simple things in life Like air and sky and somebody to hold my hand at night Or all the time You and I, we joke and like to laugh At all the things we've overcome And all that I can say is that I love you And all that I can say is that I'm yours With all that fades away, I've found a place to stay I am yours, you are mine, we are one Street lights that glow and no more Saturdays alone Like sweet remains and shades of souls that never fade away fade away You and I we joke and like to laugh At all the funny faces in the photographs Bridge: Don't ever go away, say you'll forever stay Give me your day to day and stay through the sun and the rain Don't ever go away, say you'll forever stay Say you'll stay Say you will stay
